Recent San Diego vacation rental reviews

Wow this home!! The pictures don’t do it justice! This place was beautiful and more spacious that the pictures look! Our family of four stayed here very comfortably! They literally had everything we needed save for a few extra wash clothes. The home is so airy and open to views of the bay, but also feels private thanks to the well thought landscaping. The outside seating was so cozy and it was so nice that you could open the home for a more indoor/outdoor living. We also took advantage of the fire pit and the beautiful weather in the evenings!! It was so nice to relax after a long day at the amusement park! The location could not be beat. With the bay right outside and the ocean beaches a five minute walk away it was perfect. We also walked to dinner one night up by roller coaster. About a 15 min walk, so not to far to get to restaurants but not close enough to be able to hear all the night life. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner! He is such a nice man so if you rent this place and see him around be sure to say hello!! We absolutely plan to stay here again and are already considering dates and time of year! Thank you Bayside Retreat for being the perfect getaway!!

The views from this home are absolutely beautiful especially at sunset. The jacuzzi was an added plus. The home has everything needed in the kitchen and restrooms.

This house was such a great spot for enjoying Mission Beach and Bay. Walk a hundred feet and you’re at a crosswalk to get to the beach one block away. Belmont Park with roller coaster and restaurants and markets are two blocks away. Pick up breakfast burritos or a pizza and bring it back to the awesome patio with dining table and fire pit. The house has ample beach towels and beach gear (chairs, boogie boards, pail and shovel, water shoes, bikes). It was fully outfitted with extra sheets and many towels, washer/dryer. Kitchen was fully stocked with pots pans utensils, everything you need if you care to cook. Also SPICES. Two full drawers of spices. There was a Keurig and Nespresso. We did have to buy some k-cups but there was some sugar and some pantry odds and ends in the cupboards. Everything was beautiful inside and mostly lived up to the photos. I could see there were a few pieces of art missing from the walls where there were empty screws, and some of the walls could use a little cleaning as the white paint showed marks and grunge easily. Apart from that, everything was well cleaned when we arrived. My family of 6 had a great time at Mission Possible and would love to return another time.

Explore our San Diego, CA vacation rentals

Break out from the humdrum with a trip to sunny California. San Diego vacation rentals offer a convenient home base while you explore nearby city attractions, stunning beaches, and dive into the food scene. Welcome to California, there’s something here for everyone.

Where is San Diego, CA?

Just 13 miles from the seaside beach community of La Jolla, our San Diego beach house vacation rentals offer access to a cosmopolitan, vibrant city environment, but with exciting outdoor attractions like hiking, biking, fishing, and of course surfing, right nearby.

Outdoor Activities in San Diego

There are 27 miles of car-free, winding, paved bike paths that loop around the activity-rich area of Mission Bay (great for families) and the Bayshore Bikeway includes 25 miles of scenic bike lanes along San Diego Bay. Whatever your skill level, you can find an adventure on two wheels —and a few photo ops on the way.

When you leave your vacation rental in the morning, you can explore the canyons, mountains, and deserts on two feet. Hiking trails are plentiful and well-groomed, whether you take off for an easy Sunset Cliffs beach walk or a three-mile vertical climb up Cowles Mountain. If you're looking to catch a wave, San Diego boasts big swells and waves, guaranteed to have you hanging ten before you know it.

Things to Do in San Diego

Mission Bay boasts one of the largest aquatic parks in the world, so bring your water skis, kayaks, and fishing pole. With over 90 museums in San Diego County alone, this is a haven for arts and culture enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon walking around Balboa Park (home to the San Diego Museum of Art, Model Railroad Museum, and more), Old Town San Diego, and if you have kids, be sure to stop by the New Children's Museum downtown or the world-famous San Diego Zoo

With an impossibly tasty food scene, it’s only a matter of where to start in San Diego. Stop by a corner taco stall on your way to the beach, dig into fresh seafood by the water, or head to Hodad’s Downtown for a locally-loved giant burger. Don’t forget to cool down with ice cream while window shopping on the boardwalk.

At 120 miles south of Los Angeles, San Diego offers a gentle Mediterranean climate with plenty of sun and cool ocean breezes. The city boasts 70 miles of gorgeous beachy coastline, making it the perfect location for a memorable California getaway for the whole family, a romantic weekend, or even a surfing trip with friends. Browse beachfront homes, high-rise condos, or search stays by amenities for your home base in this sun-drenched coastal city.
